Recorded at Recorded at Smiling Buddha (Pleasence Fest), February 10, 2018.

WHIMM - unknown

Celebrating both their transformation under a new ownership structure as well as the release of a new podcast, Pleasence Records put on a full night of entertainment, keeping busy with alternating sets upstairs and down. I came halfway through after attending an early show and still managed to catch four sets! WHIMM completed the proceedings with a short but intense set, bathed in moody blue light. The group were playing as a four-piece with Patrick Flegel (who performs as Cindy Lee) on second guitar, and this piece saw Deliluh's Kyle Knapp guesting on sax. That helped add some different routes into Mounir Chami's somewhat hermetically-sealed soundworld, adding some sonic relief to throw the material from the band's A Star Ajar into enlightening contrast.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
